VALLEY FORGE, Pa. (AP) - A marathoner says he was fined $100 for running in Valley Forge National Historical Park during the government shutdown.

John Bell, 56, said he parked his car on Sunday in a remote parking lot, not one blocked by a barrier. Bell, of Chadds Ford, said two rangers were waiting with their car lights flashing when he returned.

It is so damn amazing that the “park is closed” and they are able to have park rangers patrolling it.

Similar thing happened here in the People’s Republik of NJ. They closed the parks during a shutdown, but had park police patrol it. We ignored the “closed” signs rode our mountain bikes on the trails anyway. F-em.

We are seeing the left’s true colors. Brutal and repressive. These fines are illegal and wrong.

Yep, and the democrips and their little bastard boy-king are counting on finally being so unconstitutional that We The People start shooting them. THEN what the globalist have been using the low IQ dolts to accomplish comes to pass, America turns into Amerika, with fedzilla ruling with an iron fist.

Park further away....then misdirect your point of origin.

They won’t see where you came from.

You’re running anyway!

He already paid in taxes that support the Fed’s management of said park. Seems to me that all of the national parks and monuments are owned by the taxpayers rather than those who we allow to manage them.

I’m past disgusted with the rangers and other officers who are keeping baricades up, removing people, and handing out fines. They’re supposed to be representing us, at our national parks and memorials. They’ve become a big part of the problem “just following orders”.

Being a union goon comes first, American comes second.

DUmmie FUnnies 10-07-13 ("This Land's Not Your Land": DUmmies down with Obama's park shutdown)


THIS LAND'S NOT YOUR LAND
Tune: "This Land Is Your Land"
As sung by King Obama

This land's not your land, this land is my land
Shut down or open, it comes from my hand
From Barack Obama to the bitter clingers:
This land's not made for you to see

If you go driving an interstate highway
And see an orange cone, you'll do it my way
You will obey me and not go forward
This land's not made for you to see

This land's not your land, this land is my land
Shut down or open, it comes from my hand
From Barack Obama to the bitter clingers:
This land's not made for you to see

You'll want to travel and go to Mount Rushmore
But at Rapid City, you won't go much more
Guards will surround you, their voices sounding:
This land's not made for you to see

This land's not your land, this land is my land
Shut down or open, it comes from my hand
From Barack Obama to the bitter clingers:
This land's not made for you to see

If you oppose me, I'll make you suffer
Come near memorials, I'll put up a buffer
I am Obama, I am your land lord
This land's not made for you to see

This land's not your land, this land is my land
Shut down or open, it comes from my hand
From Barack Obama to the bitter clingers:
This land's not made for you to see

If you go looking, you'll see a sign there
And on the sign it says: "There's No Trespassing"
And on the other side: "No Looking or Nothing!"
Both sides were made for you to see

This land's not your land, this land is my land
Shut down or open, it comes from my hand
From Barack Obama to the bitter clingers:
This land's not made for you to see

At the Redwood Forest, in the land of the Canyons
By the Gulfstream Waters, you'll see my minions
As they stand there guarding, you'll stand there wond'ring:
Is this land safe for me to see?

This land's not your land, this land is my land
Shut down or open, it comes from my hand
From Barack Obama to the bitter clingers:
This land's not made for you to see

No one can stop me, my mind is made up
As I go putting my Barrycades up
Nobody living can make me give your land back
This land's not made for you to see

New voices:

But King Obama, this land is our land
So shut your piehole, you can go pound sand
From the bitter clingers to Barack Obama:
This land was founded to be free

This land ain't your land, this land is our land
So shut your piehole, you can go pound sand
From the bitter clingers to Barack Obama:
This land was founded to be free

If all the Ranger Ricks are furloughed are any tickets they write worth the paper they are written on?
